''Hello friends, the case of the huge sum of money deposited in my account without my knowledge, has officially been reported to the Police Commander of Parliament
"Later, I also went to file an official complaint at the bank. Officials of the bank told me they will reverse the money. I tried to know the source of the money but I was told by the officials that they suspect their system but they will investigate and get back to me. Anyway, I have done my part to reverse the GHC 133,000.00, which was deposited in my account without my knowledge. Whoever did that, please note that I have instructed the bank to reverse it by writing to them. I will update you when they reverse it and write officially to me".
